Michael Jordan

By Jack Barnes

Michael Jordan’s foothold on the sneaker industry is stomping competition. Over the last 30 years, Nike’s Air Jordan has dominated the sneaker collecting community. Today, Air Jordan sales consistently outperform prior quarters, earning $2.6 billion in 2015. As they transitioned from a specialized basketball shoe manufacturer into a fashion icon, the classic Air Jordan I style has remained timeless. Over the last decade, Nike has produced multiple “Retro” versions of these shoes, with sales of the 2015 version reaching over $700, 4.5 times initial value, StockX.com.
Among the Heritage Auctions online user archive of over 4 million items sold, there has been a clear increase in vintage Air Jordan sales. In the last 6 years, 30 pairs have been auctioned, bringing a total value of $218,036.

The right shoe is properly marked “size 13 1/2” and the left, a “size 13”. The interior inventory code possesses little wear and clearly displays “850204 TYPS,” the vintage ’85 serial number. Jordan played only 18 games the season he received the shoes due to an ankle injury. The shoes never touched the court and are in the same condition as the day of issue.
